In the 2026 assembly polls, the BJP-led alliance is expected to win at least 100 of the 126 seats in the state, according to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who made this remark on Thursday. This would be the third straight term of the NDA administration in Assam.
In response to a motion of thanks on the governor's speech to the assembly, Sarma stated that his government's "Mission Basundhara" will grant land rights to almost 2.3 lakh indigenous people.
"We will form the government in 2026 with no fewer than 100 seats. Although my government has only been in office for three years, within that period many important decisions have been made. It's been Assam's golden age," he declared.
According to him, there was no unrest or movement at this time since people were focused on growth and advancement.
According to Sarma, the number of medical colleges increased from three to six during the Congress administration and to 25 during the BJP's.
More than seven thousand young people emerged from the woods and assimilated. In the last few years, the number of bridges spanning Brahmaputra has also more than doubled, and three more are about to begin building. "We welcomed those who wished to split Assam to the discussion table," he stated.
He also told the House that there were no deaths in the state last year from any kind of terror group, police, or Army.
The entire nation was talking about Sarma's hour-and-sixty-six-minute address, in which he claimed that his three years in office had "changed the future" of Assam.
